Let this be a lesson to all high school football players out there: if you’re going to make a stunt video to impress college scouts, please do a stunt that won’t get yourself horribly injured.
19-year-old Bladimir Barreto wanted to show off his impressive leaping ability for college football coaches and figured that the best way of doing so was to leap over a car.
As Barreto approached the vehicle, it appeared that everything was still going according to plan until his leap comes up short and the car sends him airborne:
Barreto received nearly 89 stitches in his right leg and is currently in a coma. We here at Off The Bench wish him a speedy recovery…
